Occupied Paris is brought vividly to life in this wonderfully atmospheric and evocative wartime thriller set in the shadowy world of resistance, from the highly acclaimed author of Dark Star and The Polish Officer.
Combining the authenticity of the finest historical novels with the dark intrigue and romance of the best spy novels, Alan Furst’s haunting tales of undercover life in ’30s and ’40s Europe are regularly compared with the best of Eric Ambler and John le Carré and have won extraordinary praise from critics on both sides of the Atlantic.
In The World at Night he has created a truly memorable tale of survival and defiance. Set in the shadowy back streets and glittering salons of wartime Paris, it follows film producer Jean Casson, a Paris sophisticate struggling to come to terms with the uncomfortable realities of life under German occupation, as he becomes reluctantly caught up in the activities of what was to become the French Resistance.
